Singapore court says four suspects can be extradited to U.S.

By Elizabeth Neisloss, for CNN

A Singapore court ruled Friday that four people can be extradited to the United States to face conspiracy charges after electronic components from a U.S. company were smuggled to Iran and ended up in explosives in Iraq.

The case is part of an effort by the U.S. to link Iran with attacks on its forces in Iraq.

The four Singaporeans - three men and a woman - were arrested in late October. They contested the extradition proceedings, and have 15 days to appeal.

U.S. authorities indicted them, as well as an Iranian citizen, on charges of funneling thousands of radio frequency modules from the United States to Iran. The Iranian citizen, Hossein Larijani, remained at large at the time of the indictment.
